INVESTIGATING CADMIUM BIOAVAILABILITY IN NW ONTARIO USING BOREAL FOREST PLANTS
Here we document cadmium concentration in terrestrial and aquatic vegetation growing in boreal forested terrains of NW Ontario. Cd concentrations in plant samples from out study areas do not exceed the range (0.1 to 1 μg/g) normally found in land plants, except when growing in soils or sediments formed or deposited in close association with Cd-mineralized rocks. We also discuss the viability of higher herbivorous fauna such as moose as bioindicators.
